A nail technician and artist for 33 years, Tina Panariello has written about her struggles to succeed in this industry in an autobiography titled Polished: Filing Away at Life’s Truths. She takes you through many facets of her life, from secretary, actress, and mother through her divorce as well as the trials and tribulations that go with putting together a thriving nail business. Despite hitting rock bottom after her father’s death and during the recent economic woes, she accomplished her dreams far beyond her expectations.
